It depends;see below: It depends on whether ear tubes were placed in the holes created in the eardrum, and if so, which type of tubes were placed. The ENT doctor doing this procedure can tell you what, if anything needs to be done afterwards.

W/ a microscope: A myringotomy is performed on the ear drum in order to drain fluid from the ear or to place an ear tube in the ear drum. With the aid of a microscope, an incision is placed on the ear drum. The doc will place an ear tube if needed. This can be done in the clinic or in the operating room.

Sometimes none!: Tympanostomy (making a surgical hole in the eardrum) may allow for drainage of any fluid in the middle ear space, so there may be ear drainage afterwards. There can be discomfort after any procedure; the ENT can tell you what to expect and what to do for it.
